October 26, 2007, Newsletter Issue #35: What is the Average Cable Bill?

Tip of the Week

Have you ever wondered what Americans, on average, pay for their monthly cable bill? You aren't alone. Many people often wonder what their neighbors pay for cable. Many people also see a rate increase and wonder if their neighbor's are having the same issue. So, just what does each household average when it comes to cable bills?

According to MSNBC.com, in 2005, the average cable bill every month was $43.04 per household. This was split into how much the charge for basic cable averaged out to be, which was $14.30, and how much the charge for expanded cable was, which was $28.74. When added together, you get $43.04.  If you are paying around that for your cable fee, then you are on average with other people across the United States.
